homecoming vignette

there's a bottle of Kernel Season's White Cheddar seasoning on the floor,
ripped, torn, broken apart;
it was from girlfriends mom,
because I like to make popcorn on the kettle.

"don't look at him,"
says girlfriend to Waldo,
who knows that we know that he has been a bad boy,
and is guilty, like only a dog can be.
